DNP, ARNP, CNM
My goal is to provide personalized, evidence-based, low-intervention health and obstetric services to women, while providing a birthing experience that empowers women to become confident mothers. Shared decision making with patients and collaboration with specialty care providers, when indicated, are hallmarks of the service I provide.
I am an eight-year veteran of the United States Navy, where I served as a registered nurse (RN) in emergency medicine, flight nursing and labor and delivery. The Navy provided me with the opportunity to experience our country, coast to coast, including: Maryland, Florida, California, and Washington, as well as Sicily and 2 deployments. In 2012, I moved to Anacortes and began working as a labor and delivery nurse at Island Hospital, where I developed a love of the staff and community. I graduated from the University of Washington with a Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) degree in 2015. After becoming a certified nurse-midwife (CNM), I worked at Evergreen Health Midwifery Care, attending birth at Evergreen Health Medical Center in Kirkland, and Neighborcare Health, attending birth at Swedish First Hill in Seattle (yes, I commuted…a lot). During this time, I was voted a Seattle Met, Top ARNP in 2017 and 2018. I am excited to start a private practice and bring midwife-attended birth back to Island Hospital.
Being a midwife allows me to blend the art of caring with the science of medicine and apply it to the whole woman and family. My goal is to empower women with knowledge and understanding of their options, then support their informed decisions about their care. I am excited to help carry on the family traditions and be a part of each patient’s creation of new traditions and families.
I have two teenage children and love the smiles, laughter and tears that parenting brings to life. I enjoy traveling whenever possible, but equally love the home I have created here in Anacortes. I spend my free time inside reading, or outdoors gardening and taking care of a menagerie of animals. I’m excited to be more involved in the local community with the growth of my practice.
